Bristol Bad Film Club Presents: Sleepaway Camp
“A nice place for summer vacation – a perfect place to die!”
As the summer comes to an end, why not kick off your shoes and dip your toes in the crisp waters of the lake as we visit the cult horror classic Sleepaway Camp!
Released in 1983 when the slasher movie was at its peak thanks to the likes of Halloween and Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp is lauded in cult film circles for its creative deaths, shocking revelations, weird script and bold acting choices!
Once you see it, you’ll be unable to un-see it!
Angela Baker, a traumatised and very shy young girl, is sent to summer camp with her cousin. Shortly after her arrival, anyone with sinister or less than honourable intentions gets their comeuppance.

“The story of Sleepaway Camp is pretty much everything you’d expect from a slasher movie and nothing you’d ever expect, which is what makes Hiltzik’s campy and disturbing summer camp tale still one of the more memorable horror movies ever made.” – Daily Dead
“Sleepaway Camp is…a gritty, sleazy Grade-Z rip-off of what Sean Cunningham and the gang more or less perfected over at Crystal Lake.” – DVDTalk.com
“Sleepaway Camp belongs to a pool of slasher films known for their generic prolificacy; it must be noted that it is one of the first and best.” – Not Coming To A Theatre Near You
